Anyone worried about this?

Perhaps this is a reflection of the two zero points.
I didn't follow your link. Yes there is such a thing as two zero points, who knows if his zero is the first or the second of the two points. But considering that his 260 yard zero is the first, then there would be a 16 inch arc to the second zero point.

If his zero is the second, then he would observe a 32 inch drop at 460 to 500 yards.
The statement that it is a FLAT trajectory is wrong.

EDIT: Wow i followed your link. There's a lot of reading in it. Too much for me. I suspect that it backs up my statements.

Not an easy task.. All neighboring countries have closed there borders including Egypt. So they take a million people, wearing nothing but rags, form a humongous corridor, and exodus where, into the Mediterranean?
Maybe they're waiting for the Red Sea to part again? Or this time the Mediterranean. Any way you look at it, this isn't going to be pretty.

Don't know either, simply a possible explanation for apparent flatness at 260 then 460 yards.

One would need a massive projectile to experience anything close to zero drop over 200 yards. Perhaps the 5"/38 could do it although its man-portability is suboptimal.

It was really just a handy way to convey the first diagram on mobile.

All bullets drop over distance, my zero was at 260 yards;
apparent (relatively) speaking & ease of shooting/acquiring, it's far easier if the bullet drops far less than say a .308 at the same distances.
Likely not need any turret elevation adjust, just slight reticle view +

This is why our military & special forces transitioned to 6.5,, everything is the same magazines/upper - just the 6.5 barrel swapped out,
so it was a no brainer.

I'm more worried about the war in Israel and it's ramifications. Looks to be possibly the war mentioned in Psalm 83 of the Bible. This means Lebanon and Jordan will join the fight. Likely ending with the prophesy in Isaiah 17 of Damascus being destroyed by fire in one night (probably nuked by the description). Then we have Zechariah 9 mentioning the king of Gaza being killed, the Palestinians resorting to canabalism, and Jews will be looking for the return of Christ. Part of the prophesy was fulfilled over 2000 years ago. They may end up receiving the Antichrist instead. Then there's Isaiah 11:14-16 which describes this war as well but adds the drying up of the Euphrates River and the Gulf of Aqaba. That leads to Revelation 9:13-21 and Ezekiel 38. These passages discuss the Russian and Iranian invasion of Israel with an army of 200 million mounted troops. The Euphrates River is dried up right before the battle of Armageddon.
When the Palestinian protesters are yelling "from the River to the sea", they are saying they want to drive the Israelis all into the ocean and kill them via genocide. It does scare me that we have terrorist cells in the U.S. from Iran planning their next attacks and still have open borders. It scares me that sanctions were eased allowing our oil money to go to Iran. It scares me that all the weapons lost in Afghanistan and some sold on the black market meant for Ukraine might be getting used by Hamas or smuggled across the U.S. border to use against us while our leaders are trying to marginalize our second amendment rights. It scares me that I can't trust my own government to be on the side of it's citizens when they're actions yell treason.

The threat of a terroristic act in America is probably at an all time high today. With seemingly open borders and no enforcement done to stop or send those breaking the law to enter back to their country of origin is beyond me. We have tens of thousands of military aged men walking into the USA without being vetted at all… it's lunacy. It really is. These people are from all over the world, who knows how many radicals have already entered and continue to do so daily? - it's unfathomable that anybody would think this border policy is safe or sustainable. Look at big sanctuary cities, like NYC… it's being overrun… they cannot handle the influx of illegal individuals, the mayor announced NYC will be slashing the police / fire dept. / sanitation payrolls by 15% by April of 2024. Meanwhile nyc is having a hard time controlling the city as Is… I'm sure slashing the agencies overtime and such will only help the situation (what a joke) they should be INCREASING their budget for these essential jobs…

I don't go about my day in fear for what is possible… if you do then terrorism wins, you need to keep going about your day, but be vigilant as to the danger that looms and be prepared to deal with whatever threat may arise…. That doesn't only include how to actively stop a threat, but after the threat is stopped… having the proper tools and training to start treating those injured.

I'm not a paranoid person, just very aware that at any moment evil can strike. I live my life as normal as anybody else, but carry certain things with me that many don't, so that I can hopefully face that evil and overcome it.

Boston bombing is a reality, it happened and can VERY VERY easily happen again. Just about anybody anywhere could recreate that tragedy again… now only easier due to the failed border policy our "President" has been running with for years now. Absolute joke.

We will see how this situation plays out… hopefully as well as it can… hopefully not any worse then it's already become.

Joan Rivers said "if NJ started firing rockets at NY, NY would wipe NJ off the map". "They started it now live with the choice". Referring to them electing Hamas as their leaders in 2006.

I'm no more concerned about the deal than I was 10, 20, 30 days ago.
Or to quote David Bowie "I'm afraid of Americans". Those people are crazy.

20th Century had about 7 or 8 genocides.
21st will likely have just as many.

Getting a lot of coverage. I'm not sweating it in my area…

Are there a lot of Palestinians in Idaho? Idaho seems like a very odd, out of the way place for Hamas to attack. I wonder how many Hamas we have here in the US. Of course, with the border as porous as it is, it is impossible to know. Thanks Biden.

I jokingly posted this FBI warning due to it's ridiculousness. It's hard to imagine a less likely area than Idaho for Hamas to attack.
